Psalm 121: Levavi oculos

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Burial of the Dead - Rite One - The Liturgy of the Word - From the Old Testament.

I lift up mine eyes to the hills; *
from whence cometh my help?

My help cometh even from the Lord, *
who hath made heaven and earth.

He will not suffer thy foot to be moved *
and he that keepeth thee will not sleep.

Behold, he that keepeth Israel *
shall neither slumber nor sleep;

The Lord himself is thy keeper; *
the Lord is thy defence upon thy right hand,

So that the sun shall not burn thee by day, *
neither the moon by night.

The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil; *
yea, it is even he that shall keep thy soul.

The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in, *
from this time forth for evermore.
